Abstract

We fabricated flexible antennas for wearable RFID applications by cutting from commercially available electrotextile and by painting with conductive paint on a cotton substrate. The ready tags were coated with a protective encapsulant. The wireless performance of the tags was evaluated initially, after coating, and after moisture testing in tap water. The read ranges of the copper-textile tags and the painted tags were around 10 and 4 meters, respectively. The coated tags were able to maintain the excellent read ranges even after 1 hour in water.
